In recent years the aerospace industry has developed many ways of joining parts together despite all innovations, however, the most common means of doing this remains the mechanical fastener. The designer needs to know which fastener systems are the most efficient from his point of view this report is the outcome of a collaborative program which aimed to evaluate some of the available Fatigue-rated Fastener Systems. The programme studied a number of systems tests covered not only the fasteners themselves but also the preparation of the holes and the quality of fit.
